Library instruction introduces students to resources and research strategies for a specific course of discipline. The librarian is available to provide one time instructional lessons on a specific theme or skill, can be called upon to provide or arrange tours of libraries on UBC campus, and is available to help faculty develop courses that include information literacy competencies. Library instruction opportunities may be scheduled during regular Librarian hours, or during an alternate time arranged with the librarian. Library instruction sessions are tailored to the needs of the class. Faculty are encouraged to contact the librarian well in advance of the date of the intended library instruction so that sufficient development and technological tools can be prepared.
